    I think this is pretty recognizable...and famous at the same time.

    That stupid Reese's Pieces ad with ET ... made product placement popular and now it is silly out of hand.

    There's a great series on advertising at radio.cbc.ca called The Age of Persuasion. It is available by streaming audio but not by podcast.

    There are a lot of not so famous ads that are quite amazing. A lot of them can be seen at www.frederiksamuel.com/blog. I enjoy that site and hope you will too.

    The ad that consistently tops those best advert ever polls here in the UK is the Guinness Surfer ad.

    No problem. I love that site. I rolled through about 70-80 pages of stuff on there last night. Amazingly clever ads. Great for inspiration.
